You only need to connect the single audio wire from the AVR's subwoofer output to the sub's L or R input (pick one). May have to remove a plastic cap covering the RCA input.
Decide how you want to activate the power. Manual, 12V trigger, or signal presence detector. There's a switch next to the power switch for that.
After it is powered up, you can set EQ on/off, Input Direct/Norm, Phase Invert/Norm, and Damping up/down.
I'd suggest starting with EQ off, Input Direct, Phase Normal, and leave the Damping alone.
The EQ and crossover settings will all be deactivated in this case. Your AVR should take care of the crossover, and maybe the EQ if it has that built in. If not, the EQ will be your best friend. We can discuss adjusting it later.
